Competency Management System guidelines

“HSE's analysis of recent major hazard leadership interventions has highlighted the links between poor performance on site and a lack of competency in the management of major hazards at senior leadership level.

Boards should have at least one person who is accountable for process safety performance and workforce competence, who understands how the decisions made at board level can impact upon safety, both now and into the future."
